Nikon SB-800 - recycle time real world experiences?

I was just playing around with my batteries.  The user manuals says with "fresh batteries" at M 1/1 power rechargeable Ni-MH 200maH recycles in 4.0 seconds.  The flash wasn't attached to the camera, it was set to M 1/1 and I pressed the "flash" button.

I have 2 sets of batteries here, they are not new.  One set took 15secs and the other almost 20secs.  They were just taken off the charger less than 30mins ago.

What have your experiences been and have you ever reached the stats provided by Nikon?

Cheers.
